I think I actually do like Cougar.

Part of the reason is that it does sort of play off the animal theme used in the automotive world - Janguar, Mustang, heck, even Bug.

It plays well against Zilla too. Instead of a giant dinosaur, our controller is just a slightly more friendly wild animal.


I suggest COUGAR as the general controller name, and Lil Miss Mosfet as the personal name of controller serial #00001.

Ooh, I like the idea of individual, personalized names. When I build mine, I'll name it OSCAR the Cougar. If Intrigued doesn't mind.

The only thing that can supply that kind of power is a bolt of lightning! But unfortunately, you never no when or where it's ever going to strike!

You do now!

Give me that piece of paper of the clock tower!

Yeah, I like "Open Revolt". Count on the master punster to come up with something good.

AND... you could shorten it to OpRe! (which is what people in the south call Oprah. I think. Don't they?)

Paul: we started this with no clear deadline or without indicating if this was just the nomination round. Since it's your party, you can call the shots & pick the winner.

Shucks, no, I don't mind. I'd be honored. Better than Oscar the Grouch, huh!
